The Journey

The Chosen Ones from Kenya have faced a long journey. This journey was not easy. Along the way they faced many challenges, barriers and ordeals. There were moments of doubt and times when the Chosen Ones were ready to give up. As the journey became tougher, the community stood behind the Chosen Ones and granted them special charms that gave them the strength to persevere. The Chosen Ones walk with the spirit and support of their community as they work towards completing their Quest.

As Chosen Ones, this is the journey we’ve embarked on...
